I enjoy presenting at information security conferences and events. It gives me a chance to share ideas, receive feedback and learn from other members of the infosec community. Here are a few upcoming events where I will be speaking on topics related to security careers, malicious software and social media security:
- Across the Desk: Different Perspectives on InfoSec Hiring and Interviewing: I will be co-presenting with Lee Kushner on the topic of hiring and interviewing for information security jobs. SOURCE Boston Conference, April 2011, in Boston MA.
- Learning to Live with Social Networks: Risks and Rewards: I will explore how to evaluate the risk of sharing too much information online with the value it brings to the business at OWASP NY/NJ Local Event, May 2011 in New York, NY.
